No trip to Disneyland Resort is complete without trying all of its tasty treats and iconic foods. When you have food allergies or dining restrictions, we understand that this can sometimes leave you with a case of FOMO, as accommodations can be scarce. Luckily, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park offer a ton of gluten-free options! You can enjoy some favorite snacks, while others will come with slight modifications. Let’s hop to it and find out the ribbeting details on how to eat gluten-free at Disneyland Resort.
Don't froget to ask a cast member about ingredients before ordering, as things do change all the time. The Disneyland chefs are always hoppy to talk to guests about allergies and intolerances. When mobile ordering, scroll down to the Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly tab and order from there. You can also order in person to modify food items and make them gluten-free.
We are hoppy to say that Disneyland adds more gluten-friendly and gluten-free items all the time. Some of the newest items are the cheese and pepperoni Flop-Overs at Café Daisy in the reimagined Toontown!
Here’s a look at some of the yummy gluten-free choices, along with some tips for eating gluten-free at Disneyland. Keep in mind that it might take longer than usual for the restaurant to prepare your food when you order gluten-free. The cooks may prepare a gluten-free food item or meal in a separate area, change gloves before preparing it, use a different oil to fry it (if necessary) and take the measures necessary to prevent cross-contamination. Packaged baked goods may need to be thawed or heated. Know that the extra time is to keep your food safe from unwanted ingredients ... a labor of love!
Some foods are considered gluten-friendly, meaning they are not made with any gluten, but these foods could have some cross-contamination. If you are very sensitive, then avoid these foods. If you avoid gluten for reasons outside of a medical condition or allergy, then these particular choices may work for you.
An item that is labeled “gluten-free” has been made without gluten and measures have been taken to prevent any cross-contamination. For example, the delicious Disneyland macarons or gluten-friendly IncrediCookie may be naturally gluten-free, but they are not labeled or promoted as “gluten-free.” The macarons are sitting near other baked goods, making cross-contamination possible... so approach with caution. The true gluten-free baked cookies and muffins are made off-site and packaged in a sealed bag. (We thought they were pretty tasty!)
I don't know about you, but I am a firm believer that breakfast is the most important (and often the most delicious) meal of the day, especially when you'll be hoppin' around the theme parks. At Disneyland, get your gluten-free Mickey waffles, potatoes, eggs, omelets, fruit, sausage and bacon at Carnation Café or Plaza Inn. You can also request gluten-free pancakes there or get the breakfast skillet. Plaza Inn is a buffet, so you’ll need to specifically request the gluten-free Mickey waffles. The Mickey waffles at Carnation Café are dense and chewy, not at all crumbly and dry. We give them two gloves up!
In terms of quick-service breakfast choices, you can get eggs, bacon or sausage and a Cuties mandarin at Red Rose Taverne. You can always find fresh fruits and even yogurt in the parks. At Galactic Grill, you can get a Loaded Breakfast Sandwich on a gluten/allergy-friendly bun, fruit or Disney check meal.
At Disney California Adventure Park, fuel up at Pym Test Kitchen in Avengers Campus with items from the gluten/wheat allergy menu. You can order the egg dishes and substitute the bread for a gluten-free option. We love the potato bites and bacon!
Even on a gluten-free diet, you can still enjoy sandwiches, rolls, hot dogs, pasta, pizza and even baked goods when dining at Disneyland. You may not see gluten-free items on the main menu, but you can ask about accommodations or even view the gluten-free choices for restaurants when using the Mobile Order feature on the app. Look for the "Allergy-Friendly" button and select "Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly" to see a list of choices. When you arrive at other restaurants to order in person, ask if there's an allergy menu, which highlights wheat/gluten allergies to help you find the foods that best meet your needs. The park no longer hands out one guide for all gluten-free choices because the menu items and ingredients are always changing. That's hoppy news though because it seems like there are always new options!
Here are a few gluten-free suggestions at Disneyland Park:
The baked goods (cookie and blueberry muffin) are officially gluten-free and come in a sealed wrapper.
You can always request an allergy menu at any of the table-service restaurants. Some are printed, and some may be verbal. Menu items are subject to change due to availability and season.
Now onto our favorite part: the best gluten-free Disneyland snacks and desserts!
Keep in mind that some of these items may be subject to cross-contamination. Only you know your body and its sensitivity levels best!
While this is not meant to be a complete list of all the options for dining gluten-free at Disneyland, it can give you an idea of where to start. Hopfully, it makes finding gluten-free options at Disneyland a little easier for you! Keep in mind that menus and ingredients may change, so always ask questions before you order.

Disney California Adventure,
My son is allergic ego eggs, wheat, diary, peanuts and treenuts. I am having a very hard time navigating his multiple allergies. I have filled out the special dietary requests but would like to utilize quick services places as well. By chance do you happen to know any items that are free from all of my sons allergies? Thank you!!
Since your son has multiple food allergies, it will be best to consult with the chef or special diets trained cast member at each restaurant (whether quick-service or table-service) before placing an order. Disney is very accommodating when it comes to allergy requests! For preparation purposes, you can view allergy-friendly offerings on the restaurants' menus ahead of time, though they tend to be separated by allergy type. This is why we'd suggest ordering in person instead of mobile ordering to ensure they can accommodate all allergies. However, you can go through the motions of mobile ordering in the app, as this is where you can easily find the allergy section. For instance, Galactic Grill has an allergy free kids' hamburger. Red Rose Taverne, Cocina Cucamonga and Flo's have several allergy friendly items as well. But again, it will be best to confirm and order in person to make sure it meets his needs. Depending on the restaurant, they may be able to modify or create something that's not even listed on the menu (more likely at table-service restaurants or buffets). Disney also allows you to bring in outside food and snacks as long as they're not in glass containers or require heating or refrigeration — so as a backup option, we'd also suggest having some snacks on hand.
Thank you so much for this! This is reducing a lot of anxiety <3
